Flourishes January Release Previews ~ Day 2


 


UnderTheUnderBigTop-GraphicWelcome to Day Two of our January New Releases at Flourishes! We have your ticket to fun in this great set called, Under the Big Top! You’ll find our own company of trained animals, circus elements and a clown to give you a wonderful performance on your next celebration. This silhouette-style set illustrated by Lauren Pope measure 4 x 6 inches and includes 9 whimsical circus images and 3 sentiments for occasions far and wide. 

I had so much fun with this set!!  I wanted to do a collage of images so I started by stamping the ticket image 7 times onto some decorative paper from Prima's Songbird collection.  I then cut them out and stuffed them in a kraft Mini bag by Canvas Corp (after adding some embossing to the bottom of it with a Lifestyle embossing folder).  I then stamped the tent with Malted Mauve VersaMagic ink, hand-cut it out, and layered it onto a mini-decorative tag by Fancy Pants.  After that, I added two sentiments from this set...one to the bag, and one to the mini-tag.  Oh, and I can't forget the sweet little stand that I colored with Copics and added it to the corner along with some washi tape.  Lastly I added some Washi Tape and Cork Arrows (Studio Calico), along with a Library clip (SU!) to the corner, and some Enamel Dots (Teresa Collins).    Whew...that's a long list. :) 

Here's a close up of the tickets, tent, sentiments, and little stand.
